You may find some useful information here, or maybe contact the author with any question.  Click on topics at the right side of the home page:

Looking at the AIM under UPC N40, it appears the older banjo style pump was only used on the L6 in 69.  Looks like SBC V8s used pump 7805656 which was the newer style with the tank crimped to the body or what you call a big filler neck.  Apparently the 396 used a different pump as it shows a different p/n in the AIM.  You will also need a flex coupling/rag joint and possibly a different Pitman arm, proper pulleys for the pump, hoses, also there are some retainers to secure the hoses which should be shown in the AIM.  I have no idea on the 2.5 or 3.5 turn gearbox, someone with more knowledge may chime in.  If you've a numbers car there are date codes on the pumps, gearbox body and aluminum top cover.

I dug out my factory originals today, they were not chromed plastic.  The car has RPOs Z23 and Z87.

Checked my 11B LOS w/ PB and all original wiring today and it has the extension.  There's an additional tan brake switch wire on the extension.  I always thought this was a "normal" harness setup.

I think it appeared in a few Scooby Doo episodes

In JohnZ's research report on first gen assembly process, under Chevrolet Assembly - Paint Shop Operations Details / Low Bake Paint it mentions how small parts were received, painted, and moved to trim line etc.  I believe the bezels are all painted dash color, and suspect they were part of this process.  The part numbers shown in the AIM, without any special finish notes, may just be to differentiate left from right and not an indicator of a finished part from the supplier.

Here's a site that shows lamp pics, you just have to muddle thru the household and Christmas tree lamps or better yet use the search box near top right.

Nothing came up for an 8646, I've never heard of that one.  I think amber lamps were only used when you had a directional/parking light with a clear or white lens, possible also the early front side markers if lens was clear.

You may already be aware of this, but the ballasts are different each year and differ from Firebird as well.  See the stickys here, good info:

You may also hear new original stock or new obsolete stock used.  New old stock is the more common term though.
250  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Wiring diagram for 67 8-track player, early design. on: February 09, 2011, 02:28:01 PM
I'm not very familiar with the 8 track setups but there was a recent discussion on the TC site:

http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=190472

You should also search both sites.  I seem to recall other discussions about the 67 factory versus dealer installed systems.   

Also I saw this $$$ underdash switch recently on ebay, not sure if it's the correct part #:

I believe the 67 assembly instruction manual (AIM) would also help you out on this.
251  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 door hinge repair on: February 04, 2011, 02:13:40 PM
Years ago I tried a drill and tap type detent repair kit, thing snapped off after a short period.  But maybe they're making them better now?

If you decide to replace you can carefully do one at a time and leave the door in place plus be close to correct door alignment from the start.  For a rebuild I wouldn't leave the door dangling that long a period.  Which ever way you go, have a buddy help you, even if they can just balance the door.  The last thing you need is the door flapping around on one hinge as the jack or dolly slides away and your fingers get crushed.
252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Headlights dim on: February 02, 2011, 12:12:16 PM
FWIW, this was linked in on a dim headlight discussion, I believe over on the TC site.  Found it interesting but I'm no electrician and have no idea on content accuracy.  Also not an option if you're running a purely stock setup:

If you're just looking to get close, there's an MS block 7N151033 in the 67 Orphans section.  I feel your pain, finally settled for one about 700 cars / two days before mine.  Never will stop looking though.  Seems those MS and MU blocks are pretty scare.
254  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '69 Alternator ? on: December 08, 2010, 03:41:24 PM
July 24, 1970.  Looks like that part number was used beginning in 69 and at least up through 1971:

If you send the calipers out for rebuild, make sure they don't grind down the casting # area to restamp with their own internal number.  Hopefully rebuilders today know not to do this, but I have seen some older rebuilds where this was done.
